Thanks for this one. I have been canvassing for some time now. I am planning to change my kit slowly because I cannot afford to buy a new one right away. This will really help me fill in the gaps in my box. Are you using all these?

I can only really comment on the foundations as I have tried dozens. I don't use any other mineral products. Of the foundations, I have tried low end and high end and there are good and bad in both, but I really think it depends on your age and skin type. I use my foundation over La Roche Posay Anthelios 50+ sunscreen. The best I have ever used is Elizabeth Arden Mineral Powder foundation. I used the lightest colour which is (01). It seems to have a luminosity about it that I just didn't find with any of the others. It was also virtually undetectable in outside lighting. Of the lower priced foundations, I found Maybelline's mineral powder foundation to be pretty darn good, but I don't think you could really describe it as a genuine mineral makeup due to the ingredients in it. The most disappointing one for me was the Youngblood foundation. I paid a lot of money for this as I live in Australia and we pay top dollar for everything!!! I know how to apply mineral powder foundations and always use the right tools. This was a cakey, horrible mess of a foundation.

I liked BareMinerals however I wasn't too impressed with it so I couldn't justify the cost. This was a couple years ago.. maybe I need to give it a shot again?

I adore Root. They're new to the scene, but their mineral makeup is so much more affordable than what's on the market + the same quality (if not better) than bare minerals. Love!

bareMinerals all the way!!!

 

Interesting post.

I’ve tried Perfect Veil of Bare Minerals, but I was not so satisfied since I have some redden areas to cover.

Have you any suggestions? Maybe I should tried a foundation. Have you tried it?Interesting post.

Ive used Antipodes which is an New Zealand brand, im from NZ so unfortunately cant get a lot of the ones mentioned here =( But i found it Really good quality BUT i got the wrong colour so cant use it, i got yellow tones and really should have got pale pink, the yellow is awful, but my skin is very orange to begin with (carotene overload) so it may work nicely for others

I have tried Bare Minerals, but I really prefer the way Larenim's mineral makeup looks on my skin.

 

I also have Lotus' foundation, but haven't really tried it out yet, and if I ever do that then I will allow myself to try some LA Minerals testers. 

 

Do you guys have a favorite mineral concealer? Because the only thing I have ever achieved with powder concealers is disappointment.

hey everyone.

 

I just thought I'd add my 2 cents to this post.

 

If your looking for an inexpensive mineral foundation, I recommend Avon smooth Mineral foundation (there is a calming effects version which I need to try). This is fantastic for the price (£10 but usually on offer for £5). However not to forget it does provide a luminous, healthy finish to the skin so maybe not good for those with very oily skin .(works for my normal to combo skin)

 

Another inexpensive mineral foundation is the Physicians formula mineral wear(loose powder version). I think this applies beautifully on the skin(doesn't sit on the skin like some others do and better than the compact versions in my opinion)

 

And lastly I love the Loreal true match mineral foundation, gives very nice coverage and provides a natural finish to the skin.

 

More expensive good mineral powders would be the Belle pierre's mineral foundation.(Bare mineral's ready foundation is fantastic, lovely full coverage foundation,prefer it to the original)

 

I think I should do an in-depth review on my blog as I've tried so many....lol :D

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
